RYA Advanced Powerboat success!

This week Lois, Simon and Andrew all passed the exam for the RYA Advanced Powerboat Certificate of Competence. This qualification will get a ‘Commercial Endorsement’ after a bit more paperwork and we will then have much more flexibility to make full use of ‘Friendship’.

The process was very challenging, involving 2 full-on 15-hr days of practical and theory examination, including navigating at high speed in the dark, man overboard drills and knowledge testing.

We also owe a debt of gratitude to Rod and Jon whose vision, skills and commitment to Horizons over many years have given us a great asset like ‘Friendship’.
